    My VW unit is a magnet type valve - mono-stable. It draws about 250mA when activated. It is normally open so the coolant gets a chance to move through the heater core once in a while. When power is applied the valve closes. As soon as you remove power a return spring forces the valve open. I like it. Got a brand new unit for about $20. The only thing I'm not too happy about is how loud this darn thing is It closes with a noticeable "clunk" but I can live with it... with the engine running it's not really an issue. I'm sure it will be better once I get new carpeting installed. Those bare floors resonate a lot.
    I'm sure your motor driven one is a lot quieter than this.

    The motor drive is very noisy but I don't think it will be run much. Pretty much only fall and spring is when I need heat, otherwise it will remain closed.

    Thank you! Yep, I'm still here and it feels good to be back!

    I need to take some higher quality photos of my setup. Unfortunately my old phone was made obsolete by the mighty G and one of the system "upgrades" has made my camera pretty much useless. It used to take really nice pictures...
    Just a teaser of the work that I did on my car...

    I'll be starting a new thread once I have a chance to take some nice pictures.

    Thanks guys!
